Music from the Armenian Diaspora

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Listen to music from the Armenian diaspora on this New Sounds program. Hear the duduk, that distinctive double reed instrument, by the “Master of the Duduk,” Djivan Gasparyan, in many different combinations, from Gasparyan’s collaboration with Canadian-American producer Michael Brook’s electric guitar, to a work featuring the cellist Maya Beiser.  Then, hear Gasparyan’s duduk in a work by the Italian pianist/composer Ludovico Einaudi.  There's also music from the recent release by violist Nicolas Cords (of Brooklyn Rider) playing a work by Alan Hovanhess.

With Ludovico Einaudi

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

The Italian keyboardist and composer Ludovico Einaudi joins John Schaefer for this New Sounds program.  Einaudi’s latest effort is “In a Time Lapse,” recorded in a wooden room in a monastery near Verona, Italy.  Listen to selections from that record, as well as a liberal sampling of his music; from solo keyboard works to pieces featuring forward-thinking violinist Daniel Hope, to collaborations with kora player Ballake Sissoko and duduk master Djivan Gasparian from Armenia.
